Ok, I've been scanning this situation with Money vs Canelo over and over in my brain and I realized that now it seems Floyd will be staying at 147 since they stripped him of his belt at 154 and everyone seems to want him to go back up and face a bigger Alvarez (who walks around at 170/re-hydrates to the same weight on fight night) and there are those (Haters, mostly) who expects him to make the move back up and not do it at a CW but then those same (Haters, mostly) gave Manny Pac a pass when he took on an Old/way past it/Over-the-hill Oscar at 147 (a weight he hadn't been at in 9 years) for Manny's CW fight with him at WW.

So the questions are: Is there a Double Standard here?? And, if so, why does it exist for Floyd and not for Manny Pacquiao??

DISCUSS!!

We talk about how Floyd will be remembered but how will Pacquiao be remembered? Marquez exposed him, Rios might crack his chin yet again. Yeah Pac is the supposed good guy but his skeletons have been uncovered. He will not be one of the greats. People will slowly realized that he was well matched. But forget that, how will history and boxing fans remember Pacquiao? How will you remember him?

He will go down as one of the greatest smaller fighters of all-time and one of the greatest fighters of his era. Marquez didn't "expose" him. He landed a HUGE right hand. That would be like me saying Antonio Tarver "exposed" Roy Jones. Pac dominated the legendary Mexican trio of MAB, Morales, and JMM....going 6-2-1 against them. He dusted most of his opposition against the smaller fighters. He then moved all the way up to 147 and fought many of the big names. Remember that Manny started at light flyweight. The fact that he was able to go all the way up to 147 and fight (and dominate) bigger fighters like Margarito, Oscar, and Cotto is extremely impressive.

Hell, it isn't like he is bad right now unless that crunching right by JMM destroyed him. He looked pretty good against a very game Bradley and only the major Pac hater thinks he lost that fight. He looked really good against a determined JMM before that right. Remember that Pac was in control of that fight until "it" happened. The Rios fight will tell us a great deal about what he has left. If he smokes Rios then you probably see a rematch with him and Bradley. I think if Pac is right, he handles Bradley and then all of a sudden a great deal of shine and attention will be back on him.
